Adding awesome vector clipart to LibreOffice

I was recently poking around with LibreOffice and figured out how easy it is to add great vector clip art to ones LibreOffice gallery collection.  My experience with both LibreOffice and the site that provides so many awesome clip art images in vector and many other formats was so pleasant, I figured I would post this tutorial to give then both some love.

Step one in the tutorial is where we download the vector images we want to add to our gallery. This is where flaticon.com comes in.  They have over six hundred thousand icons - all of which you can download in multiple image formats including .png, .svg, .eps and .psd.  Many of the icons are available with their free account but you can get full access to a richer set of icons with their premium plans. Plans range from about $7.50 to $9.99 per month at the time of this writing. If you like their work, consider getting one of their premium plans.

Once you are on flaticon.com, if you are a free user look for one of the icon packs with the [S] in the top left corner - this means the pack is available for free. Icon packs are saved as zip files by default, so you will need to unzip the folder to a familiar location on you hard drive such as Photos folder if you are using Windows - as I am in this tutorial.

With the folder unzipped, you are now ready to fire up LibreOffice. I am using LibreOffice Version: 5.3.4.2 (x64).
